Went to work this morning at around 6-something this
morning. It was butt-kicking cold, and I had no idea how
far this place was, so I thought that I was going to be
late...then I find that the gas guage was almost on E, so I
had to stop and put some gas in the tank.

my wife's side of the family and their respective
offsprings were going to come visit in 30 minutes...Cool!

have, so I can have that to play with when I'm also in
Oh well, three more days till Christmas...Merry
